Description

About the Stewardship Site:
Roxborough State Park carries the esteemed designation of a Colorado Natural Area and a National Natural Landmark for good reason. The 4,000-acre park, nestled against the foothills south of Littleton, is comprised of stunning red rock formations, unique plant communities and a wide range of wildlife. The approximately 100,000 annual visitors can take in all of Roxborough's beauty from a variety of different access trails.

About the Volunteer Experience:
Volunteers will construct more than 2,600 feet of basic trail, which begins at the road and passes through a small meadow. You'll build a short bridge to cross a drainage, as well as rock steps and retaining walls along the trail. This project is perfect for all levels of fitness and abilities, and its convenient Front Range location makes for a quiet escape from the sounds of the city. This project has a maximum of 75 participants, so if you are looking to meet new people from all over the state, this project is right for you! A delicious breakfast and lunch will be provided.

About the Overall Impact:
The construction of this trail will provide access to a scenic viewing area and waterfall that is currently inaccessible. Further, the specific section of trail will eventually serve as an access point to a larger route, which will create a loop for users to enjoy expansive views of the park and the Front Range.
